A word that must never be used by both blacks and whites. Yet black people constantly call each other that word.
Jim: What up my nigga
Paul: Nothing much Nigga
Scott: us black people should stop calling each other that word, it has evil roots.
Jim: What do you mean, homie?
Scott: What I mean is, you don't see Mexicans calling each other wetbacks or beaners because they think it's a "term of endearment", you don't see gay men saying: "look, there's my faggot over there!"
Paul: Good point

As defined by the movie Poolhall Junkies, a "nigga" is simply a friend or "homie" as opposed to "nigger" which is a derogatory name for a black person. Nigga can be used by people of all races as long everyone is ok with it.
Johnny (White): So your saying that because me and you are friends, that makes us niggers?

Chico (Black): No, no, no, niggas aight? theres a big difference.

Johnny: That what I just said. I said nigger.

Chico: No, nigga.

Johnny: Nig-ger.

Chico: Nigga. N-I-G-G-A. Nigga.

Johnny: Nigga? What the fuck is that?

Chico: Look man it means like we brothas you know what I'm sayin'? Like if I say you my nigga, that means we boys. You see? Like that man you playin' right there? Thats my nigga Charles.

Johnny: Oh, my nigger Charles?

Chico: No, hold it, hold it. You can't say that. Only I can.

Johnny: Why?

Chico: Because first of all, you dont say it right. And second, you dont know Charles. I do.

Johnny: You do?

Chico: Yeah, I do. I benn knowin' Charles since he was knee-high to a duck.

A derogatory word used by black people to retain (and exploit) their ancestors past as slaves. Many blacks claim it's a term of endearment (akin to brother, homie, etc), but in no way can it be as its root meaning is ignorance. It's another double standard of racism in our current time.
White guy "what up nigga"
Black guy "nigga?"
White guy "you know what I mean bro"
Black guy "you mean I'm a nigger"
White guy "Nah man, it ain't like that"
Black guy punches the white guy.
Black guy gets arrested for assault and released without charges because the white guy is accused of using racial slurs (that the Black guy uses everyday in his vocabulary with his "brothers" that he has no idea if he's actually related to).

A commonly used word amongst colored people. It's generally used in place of homie however it's also used as derogatory.

It was created in despite of black people's history as a means to feel better about it but in reality nigga keeps racism alive and users are self oppressing themselves.

It's generally used by people with below average IQ or uneducated ones.
If only there was other words I could use in place of nigga..
